The greatest gift of all we hear;
The perfect thing to cast out fear.
You'll know it well when it is there;
It's something wonderful to share.
This gift is patient and is kind.
It envies no one, you will find.
But you will see it bright and clear
Whenever your beloved's near.
It is not selfish nor seeks its own;
Finds joy in all and never moans.
What is this gift of which we speak?
We saw it well in Jesus meek.
A marriage must be built on this
To last in hard times and in bliss.
We know it well from God above,
It is His gift - you call it love.
